Character Creation

Now we're going to talk a little bit about character creation. Before we get started, if you have not created an account in the NERO Character Database, please read the article How Do I Join NERO? and that will cover registration basics. Go ahead, we'll still be here when you're ready.

The NERO Character Database

The NERO Character Database is where you will do all of your character administration. You control what you spend your Build Points on, buying skills and abilities, or saving them for other skills down the road (we'll cover the specifics in a second). This is where you're going to go to Pre-Register for NERO Events that you plan to attend. You can also pay for events when you Pre-Register - we have it all setup to make it easy. This is where you'll Print you character sheet and get access to lots of other features.

You'll want to save this link, you'll use it a lot:

to the Database

Before you can do anything, you'll need to sign-in to access your account. The link to Sign-in is located in the upper-right corner of the screen.

Forgot Your Password?

On the far left side in the menu is the link: I Forgot My Password (provided here for convenience) - click it and fill out the information. You will get an email with reset instructions within 30 minutes.

Creating a New Character

Alright! We're finally to the good part! Let's make a character!

First, in the left 'Members' menu, click on NERO Character Editor. Give your character a First Name, pick a Race, and pick a Class - Last Name and Alias are optional. If you need more information about Races and Classes, you can take a look at our sections for Race and Class.

Here is what I chose for our example character:

Once you've decided, click Continue. This will take you to the next screen. Here is what it looks like now:

Congratulations! You have created your first NERO Character!
